ROSENWALD FEATURE GAME Young Bobby Fischer, in winning the Rosenwald tournament for the second straight year, added insult to injury by defeating his chief rival, Resh-evsky, with a trap that many "club" strength players would have seen. On only the ninth move Fischer sprung a trap that cost Reshevsky his queen for two minor pieces (the queen is worth at least, three minor pieces as a rule), and while the veteran struggled ,on for some 30 more moves he might have 6aved himself the trouble. When Reshevsky played 8. . . Nf-R4 he unwittingly : blocked his queen's escape path, and had to give it up to avoid a forced mate, .9. P-K5, N-K; 10. BxPch, KxB; 11. N-K6, KxN??; 12.
